The importance of music in the church environment cannot be overstated. It provides emotional depth to the liturgy and increases the overall significance of the church experience. The Bible even routinely invites us to “come, let us sing.” Music and the singing of hymns are not efforts to diminish the liturgy; rather, enhance. Enter the Lord’s house with song!


Music also serves to create a connection to the church experience. A familiar hymn can conjure up memories of life’s moments—moments of joy and moments of sorrow. The music wraps up your heart and returns you to earlier days.  


Music is a critical part of the liturgy—it is the final piece to the experience of church—its message is carried with you long beyond the spoken homily or sermon.
